Rushing Amy - Book Tour & Giveaway

Rushing Amy
A Love and Football Novel
By: Julie Brannagh
Releasing Feb 11th, 2014

Julie Brannagh's sparkling and romantic Love and Football series continues!

For Amy Hamilton, only three Fs matter: Family, Football, and Flowers. It might be nice to find someone to share Forever with, too, but right now she's working double overtime while she gets her flower shop off the ground. The last thing she needs or wants is a distraction … or help, for that matter. Especially in the form of gorgeous and aggravatingly arrogant ex-NFL star Matt Stephens.

Matt lives by a playbook—his playbook. He never thought his toughest opponent would come in the form of a stunning florist with a stubborn streak to match his own. Since meeting her in the bar after her sister's wedding, he's known there's something between them. After she refuses—again and again—to go out with him, Matt will do anything to win her heart … But will Amy, who has everything to lose, let the clock run out on the one-yard line?

A few minutes with Amy Hamilton of RUSHING AMY
Amy was minding her own business an hour after her sister’s wedding reception when Matt Stephens strolled into the hotel ballroom: Tall, dark and unforgivably late. He stole Amy’s heart, but it took him a little while to do so. Let’s find out what Amy’s up to, shall we?

JB: I’m glad you had a few minutes to talk with me, Amy. How is Matt?
AH: (laughs a little) Matt’s fine. He made a huge success out of Lifechangers, Inc., the micro-credit firm he started to loan money to women-owned startups. His mother and a couple of other partners are running the business now. Matt’s taken on another challenge, which readers will find out about in an upcoming Seattle Sharks novel. Let’s just say he’s enjoying it!

We’re trying to sneak off for a little time alone whenever we can. It’s a challenge these days! Samantha has a brother, Jonathan, and a sister named Jessica now.

JB: So, you’re still working at Crazy Daisy?
AH: Yes, I am. I took some time off when Jonathan and Jessica were born. I have several employees now, so things run smoothly for the most part. I love my business, but I also cherish every minute with Matt and the children. Samantha will be off to college before we know it.

(Amy lowers her voice.) Samantha met a guy her age at her mom’s styling salon recently. He asked her out for a hot chocolate, and they’ve been talking on the phone a little. Laura and I have been keeping it a secret from Matt, who completely loses his grip every time he even thinks about Samantha talking to a boy!

JB: You’re going to tell him, right?
AH: Oh, I’ll tell him, probably tonight. (Breaks into laughter again.) He bought me some new lingerie earlier this week, and – well, it’s probably TMI, but Matt has a tough time being anything but really, really happy when I wear whatever he bought for me…

JB:  Is there anything else you’d like to tell our readers?
AH: I am so in love with my husband and our family. I hope you’ll enjoy reading how Matt and I fell in love in RUSHING AMY, and we’ll be showing up in other Seattle Sharks novels, too.

About the Author:
Julie Brannagh has been writing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. She lives in a small town near Seattle, where she once served as a city council member and owned a yarn shop. She shares her home with a wonderful husband, two uncivilized Maine Coons and a rambunctious chocolate Lab.

Julie hasn't quite achieved the goal of owning a pro football team, so she created a fictional one: The Seattle Sharks. When she's not writing, she's reading, or armchair-quarterbacking her favorite NFL team from the comfort of the family room couch. Julie is a Golden Heart finalist and the author of four contemporary sports romances.
